Why Are My Veins So Visible?
When you see a vein, you see the blood inside it, which can look red, blue, or purple. This blood can become visible when veins stretch or bulge, thinning their walls. Visible veins usually exist in areas like the legs where veins are strained as they transport blood against gravity back toward the heart. They can also occur on the face for a variety of reasons.
If you have visible veins, we recommend an assessment by a vein expert like Dr. Dohner. He will diagnose the underlying causes and provide appropriate treatment to improve your appearance and protect your venous health. Visible leg veins can indicate an underlying condition that requires treatment.
